Slip dress


Lace trim slip dress c/o Sheinside / Combat boots / Studded bag 

After about 20 years of school, I finally have a full-time job. I'm still not really sure how to handle this situation. For the past decade, it's been drilled into my head to do well in school to get a good job. But no one really talks about what happens after that pinnacle point when you finally abandon school for work.

All I know is that right now, I've re-organized my closet into three categories: "Work clothes", "Definitely not appropriate for work", and "Maybe this will be appropriate if I throw a blazer over it". I do hope that this slip dress falls into the third category. Hands down, my new favourite dress. It's super comfy, the lace details are gorgeous, and I love how the thin straps at the back add an extra touch of uniqueness.

  2. The dress is really beautiful! Why not wearing it at the office with a blazer as you said.

  4. I recently did the exact same thing with my closet after finishing my PhD -- so many years of being a student! It's weird to be in actual work mode now.

  13. This dress does look really comfy and fits you like a glove! I see it being a work piece of clothing too adding a black fitter blazer on! I think it really depends on the type of field you are in! :)

  14. gah, crossing over to the real world is super scary! but haha i love how you organized your closet for the event- i definitely think this dress would work with a blazer over it! i also love the delicate back of it- it's so feminine and pretty.

  16. I love that you paired this soft floral dress with a harder more combat like boot! I think that dress could work for work depending on how you style it!

  20. Love this ensemble! I like how your dress is in a floral print, which is usually very girly and sweet, yet it looks so cool and edgy! I also love that studded bag <3

  21. It is so weird- I saw an identical dress at H&M, so it was really surprising to read that you got it from Sheinside!
    Anyways, the dress is really beautiful, I really like the bottom lace detailing! :)

  22. hi Sabrina, thanks for coming by my blog!

    I am SO in the same boat as you, working full-time for the first time! I think you're spot on, most things can be dressed up with a blazer, and honestly most offices are so casual these days anyway! haha but I definitely have a few pieces that I will under NO circumstances wear to work! I look young enough as it is. this dress is pretty and perfect for summer!

  35. Love the delicate dress paired with the boots! :)

    Depending on what type of dress code you have in the office, throwing a blazer over things is the best way to wear more casual clothes to work :) Won't work if you're in a really formal environment unfortunately. But an office like mine, I can even skip the blazer most days as everyone else is in jeans anyway!

  37. You look like you are straight out of a Free People campaign!! Gorgeous dress, you look fabulous and your skin is absolutely flawless. With a tailored blazer, I'd say this would be perfect for a creative job. Best of luck in your new career.
